A video of a father, Bill Stevens, whose daughter attended Sandy Hook Elementary school, scene of the mass shooting in December, is making its rounds today of his testimony against gun control at a Working Group Public Hearing at the Connecticut State Capitol on gun violence prevention.
The little sister of a friend of his daughter Victoria was murdered, not by an “assault weapon” or any other inanimate object but by the evil freak Adam Lanza.
Stevens read part from the state’s constitution on the right to bear arms in self-defense and told the panel, “These rights are inalienable and endowed by our creator, not you politicians.”
From his testimony:
“But criminals and tyrants — tyrants, especially — be aware that lockdown is not an option at the Stevens residence. And 911 will be dialed after the security of my home has been established.
“Why is that same security my daughter enjoys at home with her dad not available at school in Newtown? That is what you should be considering, not making her dad a criminal.
“Charlton Heston made the phrase ‘From my cold dead hands’ famous and I will tell you here today, you will take my ability to protect my Victoria from my cold dead hands.”
Victoria is very lucky to have a true American for a father.
